With the G8 and G20 summits about to go off in my backyard, I think it's prudent of me to ask something about protesting: why are so many protesters little more than thugs that hate EVERYTHING?
Now for those of you who don't know me, don't misunderstand, I applaud dissent. However, I don't condone riots, especially riots sparked at the slightest provocation. What exactly do these "anarchists"* think that that's going to accomplish?
* (true anarchists simply don't like formal authority, they don't think that everyone should be in it for themselves)
If people want to protest globalization, or the exploitation/abandonment of the developing world, by all means do that and make yourselves heard. But when some of these idiots start making threats of blowing up banks or what-not, the only thing I can see that doing, is giving The Powers That Be an excuse to stampede EVERY protester (heck, given Emperor Harper's increasing hate for dissent, I wouldn't be surprised if he'd use that as an excuse for "emergency measures" that he'll conveniently forget to give up).
